The environment is becoming the new frontier in public interest litigation, particularly around climate change issues. This is only reinforced by recent predictions by former High Court Chief Justice Robert French that climate change litigation will be on the rise. But what avenues are there for climate change litigation in Australia? This CLE will untangle the avenues to bringing environment claims - traversing merits appeal and judicial review challenges, shareholder action and actions against trustees of superannuation funds. We will be joined by EDO Solicitor and AALA National Secretary Matt Floro, who had carriage of the recently successful Rocky Hill climate change litigation.
